Dr. Michael Crowe, on-site physician at Life Care Center of Collegedale, was named Physician of the Year for Life Care Centers of America’s Eastern Division on Oct. 20.

The award was given during a ceremony held at Life Care Centers of America’s headquarters in Cleveland, Tenn., as part of the company’s annual Physicians’ Symposium.

During the awards ceremony, Dr. Crowe was praised for his easy manner with residents and associates alike. He is heavily involved in all aspects of facility life, from making rounds and helping residents manage their medication, to being part of the facility’s performance improvement meetings, to attending special events and functions at the facility. He is even on call 24/7.

“Physicians play a pivotal role in the care of our residents,” said Beecher Hunter, Life Care president. “We are proud to honor those who stand out in their commitment and their compassion to ensure the health and well-being of those entrusted to them.”
